Drawings from Jerusalem October 8-28, 1990. In late September, 1990, Heather Spears returned to the Occupied Territories, and arrived in East Jerusalem (at Maqassad Hospital) the morning of October 8th, day of the infamous "Wailing Wall", or "Temple Mount" Massacre.

In 1989-90, Heather Spears spent 9 months touring the US and Canada with her drawings of wounded Intifada children. They have been exhibited, among other places, at the UN in Geneva, UN Plaza in New York, in Washington, D.C., Oxford, Cambridge and London. Dr. Jonathan Fine, Director of Physicians for Human Rights, has called her drawings "a moving contribution to understanding the suffering of Palestinians under occupation – an instance where drawings and sparse commentary have power transcending almost any other kind of communication."
